‘The Young and the Restless’ Has Stayed in the Bell Family For 50 Years

It’s hard to believe that The Young and the Restless has been delighting audiences for 50 years. The CBS daytime soap is one of the few that is still running after all these years, and it is more than just a show – it is a family. According to Reader’s Digest, well over 12,000 episodes have aired and it has become one of the longest-running series on television. There was plenty of celebration to mark both the momentous anniversary, and, of course, the fact that The Young and the Restless has stayed in the Bell family for 50 years. 

The history of ‘The Young and the Restless’

The Young and The Restless is set in Genoa City and focuses on two rival families in the cosmetics industry. According to Soap Hub, the show’s creator William J. Bell had already changed the tone of soap operas as a writer on Days of Our Lives, introducing a more sexual approach to the show’s storylines. He, along with his wife, Lee Phillip Bell, began pushing the boundaries even further when they created The Young and The Restless.
